Step 1: Access the Settings Menu​

To begin the cache-clearing process, you'll need to access the Settings menu on your Vizio Smart TV. Grab your remote control and press the "Menu" button. From the on-screen menu, navigate to the "Settings" option and select it.

Step 2: Locate the App Settings​

Look for the "App" or "Applications" in the Settings menu. This section allows you to manage the applications installed on your Vizio Smart TV.

Step 3: Clear App Cache​

Once you're in the App Settings, you'll see a list of the installed applications on your TV. Select the app for which you want to clear the cache. In the app's settings, you should find an option to clear the cache. Click on it to initiate the cache-clearing process.

Step 4: Confirm the Cache Clearing​

A confirmation prompt will appear, asking if you want to clear the app's cache. Read the prompt carefully and select "Yes" or "OK" to proceed with clearing the cache. Be aware that clearing the cache will remove temporary data associated with the app but won't delete any app-specific settings or personal data.

Step 5: Repeat for Other Apps (Optional)​

If you suspect that other apps on your Vizio Smart TV may be contributing to the performance issues, you can repeat the previous steps for those apps as well. Clearing the cache for multiple apps can help optimize your TV's performance.

Step 6: Restart Your Vizio Smart TV​

After clearing the cache for the desired apps, it's recommended to restart your Vizio Smart TV. Simply power off the TV, wait for a few seconds, and then power it back on. Restarting the TV ensures that the cache-clearing changes take effect and allows for a fresh start.


Clearing the cache on your Vizio Smart TV can significantly improve its performance and resolve any issues related to the slow operation or glitches. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you'll be able to clear the app cache and, if applicable, the browser cache on your TV.
